The Biblical saga of Joseph and his coat of many colors comes to vibrant
life in this delightful musical parable. Joseph, his father's favorite
son, is a boy blessed with prophetic dreams.
When he is sold into slavery by his jealous brothers and taken to Egypt,
Joseph endures a series of adventures in which his spirit and humanity
are continually challenged.
He is purchased by Potiphar where thwarting advances from Potiphar's wife
lands him in jail. When news of Joseph's gift to interpret dreams reaches
the Pharaoh, Joseph is well on his way to becoming second in command.
Eventually his brothers, having suffered greatly, unknowingly find themselves
groveling at the feet of the brother they betrayed but no longer recognise.
After testing their integrity, Joseph reveals himself leading to a heartfelt
reconciliation of the sons of Israel.
Set to an engaging cornucopia of musical styles, from country-western
and calypso to bubble-gum pop and rock 'n' roll, this Old Testament tale
emerges both timely and timeless.
